We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated and dynamic Programme Manager for the Year of Childhood that we are hosting in 2021. The post holder will be able to quickly and effectively take up their role and make an immediate contribution to the organisation.
The Year of Childhood Programme Manager is a critical role responsible for the management, development, delivery and reporting of the portfolio of events, communications and strategic high-level partnerships that make up the Year of Childhood.
An excellent communicator and networker, the post holder will develop and lead a calendar of influencing events and media strategy to inspire Scotland to know, understand and deliver human rights for children. Children’s Parliament seeks to maintain a generous approach to our work and puts kindness, trust, empathy and respect at the heart of our work, internally and externally.
Overview of Programme:
2021 is an important year for Children’s Parliament as we celebrate our 25th birthday. It is also the year the Scottish Parliament is likely to incorporate the UNCRC into Scots Law, something that Children’s Parliament has been supporting and working towards for many years. In thinking of a fitting way to mark these significant milestones and drive the culture change to make children’s rights real in Scotland, we are hosting a Year of Childhood which will run from January – December 2021.
The Year of Childhood will bring together a network of organisations, public bodies and individuals who are willing to pledge their support to share good practice in the delivery of children’s human rights – this will include highlighting challenges, sharing opportunities for new ideas; and demonstrating the positive impact of children’s rights for everyone.
The Year of Childhood will consist of a portfolio of events, discussions, webinars and roundtables with a multi-faceted communications strategy to inspire, share information, generate conversation and ultimately help make human rights a reality for children in Scotland.
